US Punks Bad Religion to Release Fifteenth Studio Album in September

Renowned LA punk-rock band Bad Religion are to release their new album on 27th September this year.

The album, which is to be named 'The Dissent of Man', is the 15th studio album from the band and follows 2007's 'New Maps of Hell'. It is produced by Joe Barresi, who has previously worked with Queens of the Stone Age and Tool. The announcement comes ahead of this month's European tour dates, which will culminate with headlining slots on the Lock Up Stage at the Reading and Leeds festivals.

Talking about 'The Dissent of Man', guitarist and co-founding member Brett Gurewitz said: "These are some of my favourite songs I've ever written. A few of them took me way outside my comfort zone as a writer to a place I haven't gone since 'Recipe [for Hate]' or 'Stranger than Fiction'."

Gurewitz (aka Mr Brett), who is also the owner of Epitaph Records, added: "I feel like the last couple of records have been amongst our most conservative, never straying too far from a Bad Religion sound. Whereas on this one, we're taking the songs to a lot of different places, exploring our influences and trying out some new things in a way we haven't done in years."

This year also marks the 30th anniversary of Bad Religion, who recently celebrated the occasion by giving away a new live album entitled '30 Years Live' to members of the band's mailing list for free.

The first single to be taken from 'The Dissent of Man' will be 'The Devil in Stitches', which can be heard on the band's MySpace page at www.myspace.com/badreligion.

The album's track listing is as follows:

1. The Day That the Earth Stalled
2. Only Rain
3. The Resist Stance
4. Won't Somebody
5. The Devil in Stitches
6. Pride and the Pallor
7. Wrong Way Kids
8. Meeting of the Minds
9. Someone to Believe
10. Avalon
11. Cyanide
12. Turn Your Back On Me
13. Ad Hominem
14. Where The Fun Is
15. I Won't Say Anything

Paul Simon - In The Blue Light (Album Review)
Tue 18 Sep 2018
While Paul Simon may not be as prolific as Bob Dylan (38 solo albums) or Van Morrison (39), he might beat both artists in terms of consistent quality. Records like ‘Rhythm of the Saints’, released in 1990, and 2016’ s ‘Surprise’ often matched the brilliance of his work with Art Garfunkel, but may have been overlooked due to ageism within pop music.
Low - Double Negative (Album Review)
Tue 25 Sep 2018
Photo: Shelly Mosman It’s not often that an album comes along and bowls you over into a state of sheer stupefaction. The Minnesota trio Low have always dabbled in minimalist experimentation, but their 12th full-length offering, ‘Double Negative’, cranks things up a notch. With Bon Iver producer B.J. Burton once again on hand, they manage to accomplish a giant leap forward without ever losing sight of who they are.
